Our drop-in center acts as a safe and sacred space for our clients in and around the community of Richmond, Virginia. Located in an undisclosed location, our drop-in center is the flagship of our client services and provides a space where clients can come to receive support, search and apply for jobs, spend time with a mentor, spend time with other clients, and receive additional services they may need.
Our Court Advocacy Team exists (i) to be the initial contact for potential clients who are coming out of jail and learning about TGH for the first time and (ii) to provide support for clients who may be coming back for a court date.Our clients may be required to testify in a particular case and can be a very difficult and potentially traumatizing time. Our Court Advocacy Team does not provide legal advice but accompanies a client to offer support and encouragement. We partner with pro-bono attorneys that provide legal counsel and advocate for our clients to ensure their voice is heard.
We provide comprehensive case management, as well as other programs at The Gray Haven, but at the center of our programs and case management is the relationship between the case manager and the client. It's beyond connecting dots. It's a supportive relationship that places the client as the top priority throughout their time with The Gray Haven. Case management is proven to be an essential and effective piece in helping victims of human trafficking navigate the complexity of rebuilding their life.At The Gray Haven, the case manager whom first begins working with a client is the same case manager throughout their process. There are multiple possible needs a client has and it's the responsibility of the case manager to identify and collaborate with the client and client services staff to establish obtainable goals and action plans. A case manager may help a client find food and clothing, access medical care and substance abuse treatment, transportation, and housing among other services.
The Gray Haven's Crisis Response Team initially formed organically when law enforcement would identify a potential victim of human trafficking during operations in Henrico County to combat human trafficking. Law enforcement would call and The Gray Haven would respond 24 hours a day/7 days a week. It became obvious that there needed to be in place a sustainable method of responding immediately to potential cases of human trafficking. The Gray Haven began to form their approach through experience responding to trafficking situations and by consulting with other agencies who had a formalized crisis response protocolToday The Gray Haven works with local, state, and federal law enforcement, as well as with service providers, to do direct crisis intervention and assessment with potential victims of human trafficking. The overall goal of the Crisis Response Team is to assist a third party agency in identifying a victim of trafficking and provide immediate victim services. The Crisis Response Team is made up of The Gray Haven staff and volunteers who are experienced and specially trained to provide crisis intervention to victims of human trafficking. The staff members are on-call to respond to victims 24-hours a day.

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?
What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?
What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?
How will they know if they are making progress?
What have and haven't they accomplished so far?
Our ultimate goal is to assist victims of human trafficking to live a healthy and exploitation free life. Furthermore, we aim to equip Central Virginia with effective strategies to combat human trafficking.
We will accomplish our goals by applying evidence based practices to care for victims of human trafficking and by collaborating with law enforcement and service providing agencies.
We follow a specific model of action at TGH. Clients go through a layered case management process that encompasses many different avenues to provide them with success in their lives. Some of these avenues include Safety Plans & Needs Assessment, Life Skill help, Team Meetings, Mental Health Screening etc. These are only a few minor things Gray Haven provides to clients. As of now, we are working on improving and adding to these subjects.
Clients` display senses of empowerment and independence in their individual lives. They realize that they are capable of handling the daily struggles of life, without continued case management from The Gray Haven. Ultimately, the clients` are ready to move on and take care of themselves but realize that the workers at TGH are there if they need any assistance down the road.
Progress will be made when TGH is able to grow bigger and continue to make a lasting impact on the community.
